A deciduous tree often used for making floors, furniture, carton boxes, and handles.
European beech trees grow more quickly than American beech trees and shed considerably more pollen.
Where is Beech Tree found?
Beech trees are native to subtropical and temperate climates in the Northern Hemisphere and are found primarily in North America and Europe.
Beech pollen allergies are strongly linked to Pollen Food Allergy Syndrome, which is a cross-reaction to allergens found in both pollen and raw fruits, vegetables, or some tree nuts.
Avoid the allergen as best as you can and reduce symptoms through over-the-counter medications. If you would like to prevent your allergies from progressing or are looking for long-term relief, talk to your doctor about allergy immunotherapy or find out if you are eligible for NectarRx Allergy Treatment.
